Combining psychotherapy and psychopharmacotherapy with the biopsychosocial model of treatment, psychiatrist Seth Pope, MD, focuses on adolescent and adult general psychiatry, including chemical dependency. At his private practice in Atlanta, Georgia, Dr. Pope also concentrates on managing dual-diagnosis conditions such as those involving comorbid chemical dependency and psychiatric illnesses. Dr. Seth Pope possesses additional expertise in addressing psychoses as well as anxiety and mood disorders. At the University of Ghana, Seth Pope, MD, studied premedicine, and he completed his medical degree at the University of Ghana Medical School. He fulfilled a residency in psychiatry at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, serving as Chief Resident on the Psychiatric Unit of Emory University Hospital during his final year. Dr. Pope began his career as a Psychiatric Consultant, then Mental Health Director, for Correctional Medical Systems, Inc., in Atlanta, Georgia. Both positions involved focusing on acute and chronic mental illness, as well as alcohol and drug abuse. During this three-year period, the doctor conducted forensic psychiatric evaluations and testified as an expert witness in court. Subsequently, he transitioned from a consulting psychiatrist to a psychiatric private practitioner in the Atlanta metropolitan area. In addition to providing services at psychiatric facilities such as Peachford Hospital, Ridgeview Institute, Brawner Hospital, and SummitRidge Hospital, Dr. Pope also practiced consultation liaison psychiatry at several General Hospitals, including Emory Dunwoody Medical Center, Gwinnett Medical Center, Emory Northlake Medical Center, and Joan Glancy Memorial Hospital. Through his service at hospitals, Dr. Seth Pope has chaired various committees and presided over medical staff. Mirroring his interest in helping his patients get well from emotional problems and addictions, Dr. Pope also has great interest helping people in other areas of life. One of his most treasured philanthropic interests is providing high-quality housing at nominal cost to men and women in need of a stable home environment for long-term sobriety. In this endeavor, small groups of men or women, up to six occasionally, live together as a family unit to strengthen their immediate recovery environment on a long-term basis. In his leisure time, Dr. Pope enjoys playing golf, gardening, traveling, following the Scuderia Ferrari racing team, and reading world history and biographical books. He is also a tae-kwon-do red belt and enthusiastically follows the martial arts and professional boxing, which he manages and co-promotes.
